Is This How Han Returns In Fast And Furious 9?


When the first trailer for the ninth Fast
and Furious film dropped at the Fast 9 Festival in Miami on January 31, fans of the nearly
two-decade-long action franchise were gifted a shocking surprise. After winning over audiences in 2006’s The
Fast and The Furious: Tokyo Drift, Han Lue, the effortlessly cool street racer, thief,
businessman, and former member of Dominic Toretto’s crew, is back from the dead. Played by Sung Kang, he died in the third
Fast and Furious movie, the first in the franchise directed by Justin Lin. Though he appeared in the next three films,
the saga’s timeline puts his death after the events of Fast & Furious 6. Thus, fans have believed for more than a decade
that Han’s fate in the universe had been sealed. “Time for you to do your own thing.” “Heard they’re doing some crazy s— in Tokyo.” Yet, there he is in the trailer, characteristically
snacking as he enters a room full of his former crew mates. This, of course, begs the question: How is
Han still alive after audiences saw him die? We Got This Covered claims to know the answer. Take the following with a grain of salt, but
the outlet alleges that Han simply escaped his car before it became enveloped in flames. Unidentified and unverified sources close
to the outlet say that Han has been in hiding, staying under the radar of those he knows
would be after him following the fateful incident. The site also reported that the character
will make an appearance in the saga’s 10th and final film, slated for an April 2021 release. However Han Lue makes his long-desired return
in F9, the news of his survival has been a shot of adrenaline to the fanbase of the Fast
franchise. After being with each other for more than
a decade, the cast has evolved into a family as much as the characters have. Han was a huge part of that, which helped
convince director Justin Lin to bring the character back into Dom’s family and back
into the Fast universe. As Lin told Entertainment Weekly: “I think it’s really up to us to bring him
back and explore it throughout the themes that we’re all used to.” The fans certainly seem happy. On Twitter, the announcement that Han would
return got the hashtag #HanIsAlive trending. It also appeared to renew the trust of Fast
diehards who felt betrayed by the movies after it gave Han’s killer Deckard Shaw prime billing
in two films following the popular character’s death. As it happens, Lin has a long history with
Han, since the character was first introduced in Lin’s 2002 crime drama feature debut Better
Luck Tomorrow. Actor Sung Kang revealed in a 2013 interview
with Mandatory that Han was added to the Fast and Furious franchise only after Lin convinced
executives to change up another proposed character. Clearly, Han is not only beloved by the Fast
fandom, but he’s also a character Lin has carried with him through his career. Han is a prime example of the narrative the
Fast and Furious saga has built around found family, and that may be important going into
the next film. Lin is certainly not treating the character’s
return lightly. He told Entertainment Weekly: “In this world, I feel like things happen
for a reason. I won’t go into details or anything, but I
do think that bringing him back is nothing I take lightly – and it took a lot – but I
think what I appreciate is that this universe has really grown and it allows us to evolve
and really kind of redefine ourselves as we go.” As Han himself would say: “Life’s simple. You make choices, and you don’t look back.” As for Sung Kang, the experience of returning
to the screen as the fan-favorite is as big for him as it is for the fans who have desperately
wanted to see him back. He told the Los Angeles Times: “It’s emotional – it feels like I’m going
back to a family reunion. It’s a relationship that has been missing
in my life since the last Fast.” See Han Lue make his long-awaited return when

  1. Hollywood will do WHATEVER they need to do with any FRANCHISE if it will make them a TON of money.
    That's all they care about.

  2. So Paul walker might actually come back to f10? Damn where is this mofo at if he faked his death! It would be the greatest plot twist of all time! But no need to put your daughter through hell for 7 years just for a promotion for FF and come back from the dead. Dude should just stay fake dead and not come back asshole

  3. Amazing it’s looks like these fast characters wouldn’t stay dead for long if they make a inspired in the next fast and furious movies.

  4. Derek Shaw probably pull him out like similar to Letty when she was gunned down by Fenix from Fast and Furious 2009.

  5. Oh please… the aim herecis to redeem shaw…. they had to justify how Dom was working with someone n his mother thst killed a member of his "family"…..

  6. Really like how the production always thinks on how to bring a certain character back. Really curious tho how they they pulled Mia back without Brian. Like what reason Mia gives to sneak out of the house and go to Dom 😂

  7. Well Han is my favorite fast and furious character since day one so seeing him come back I was very very excited but i always suspected that he never died reason for that is because we didn't see any body in the car when it exploded so I think that because han had so many enemies after him like Dk the yakuza mob and deckard Shaw he just went into hiding and start to think of a plan on how to come back by laying low so it didnt really surprised me that he came back so I don't know why everybody is acting up by saying how's han alive

  8. I'm not just gonna take it with a grain of salt (it's We Got This Covered guys… come on), I'm not gonna believe it at all until I watch the movie.

  9. Han is back and I'm happy but what about Leon? He didn't die so why isn't he part of Dom's family anymore?

  10. Dom's been in a coma since the crash at the end of F&F1 and all the other F&F movies have been coma dreams. This is why dead characters come back from the dead and why all the car stunts get even more unrealistic.

  11. han is not dead in the Tokyo drift,someone save him,the one died in his car was a dog of his friend that who save him…

  12. STUPID!!! WE SAW HIM GET KILLED TWICE TOKYO DRIFT & BEGINNING OF FAST 7… YOU DIDNT MAKE IT BETTER WITH YOUR EXPLANATIONS… SO LETTIE & HAN DIE THE SAME WAY & SURVIVE THE SAME WAY… FAST & FURIOUS SHOULD HAD BEEN MADE AS A CARTOON CAUSE YALL MAKING NO SENSE PLUS LETTIE & HAN BOTH HAD FUNERALS…

  13. Matter of fact if y'all say that your a fast and furious fan you should understand the franchise Tokyo drift was suppose to be fast 6 remember he and gisel was talking about traveling the world and she says why don't we go to tokyo and han said alright then after she had died roman said to han that so really gonna go to Tokyo and han said yea it's just something i gotta do and tej said if you need anything you know we here for you and after that tokyo drift came into the picture he started to link head's with Dk and became his partner in business stuff he was even still from dk the whole time but dk didn't realize but dks uncle kamata head of the yakuza mob of tokyo found out that's when dk got pissed and he started to Chase han down including sean

  14. It, s impossible!!! He is dead in a axplosive car crash with him inside the car they ruined the fast and the furious

  15. is fantastic that Han his back but will bee more fantastic if gal gadot as gisel yashar is back two that conpleate the groop fast and the furios

  16. They just don't have idea anymore. They bring him back just to make more money. Nothing more. Only marketing strategy 🤮

  17. Plot twist: he is not hans but some other guy who has undergone plastic surgery to look like hans.And he is gonna betray them at the end😬

  18. Looks like no one really dies in this franchise. But hey. As long as they are able to entertain me, i don´t care.

  19. Fast and furious series died to me after Fast Five. The movies are killer at this point. I miss when it was just a couple of punks rolling through Miami now it’s this mission impossible bullshit

  20. Hopefully 10 will be the last. Really not looking forward to FaF in space. Or going Rambo route. Should've stopped after 5. The rest haven't lived up to that one. Gradual decline into who cares goes faster the more you put out

  21. I really dont understand the point of this. I liked Han, hes character was cool and all.. but it takes so much away from the movies to keep seeing characters come back time and time again.. not only them dying but the fact that ever enemy becomes friends by the next movie.. also the so called badass Jason statham did his bad ass reveal showing they killed Han.. now falls flat on its face as it shows the MI6 badass Englishman cant do his job properly by confirming the kill.. mark me words Dom and his brother will be happy working together come fast 10.. anyone who dies will also be back.. and basically we will have watched 10 or 11 movies of no one dying and everyone becoming "family"..

  22. lol Han Lue?? Han's last name is Seoul-Oh. We find this out at 53 : 21 minutes into Fast 5 when Hobbs runs the satellite image grabs of the Team. Han's full name pops up on the screen while Hobbs' dude is at the laptop.

  23. I wouldn't have minded Han coming back if AT LEAST his face or body was burnt and recovered but you could see his scars.

  24. How is Han still alive?
    Really??? That's the question? How is this francise still alive?
    These guys started out highjacking trucks headed to Walmart. Now their parachuting cars out of planes for the NSA. What's next, Fast and Furious in space fighting off alien invasion? Wow!
